“Los Angeles-based brand Band of Outsiders is the latest to collaborate with Vans on the footwear giant’s classic Authentic silhouette. Never one to skimp on details, Band of Outsiders douse the sneakers’ eyelets in red and blue, while a grey wool upper and white laces provide contrast. Both the insole and outsole receive a bold color treatment, too, for a pair of sneakers that are sure to turn a few heads.
Look for the sneakers to release on Saturday, November 23 at Band of Outsiders Tokyo.”

“This minimalist, three-eyelet Chukka Boot lives and breathes the deconstructed design concept. Tonal round and waxed laces blend in with rich suede uppers in Bitter Chocolate, Glazed Ginger, and Mallard Blue for a sleek and unassuming look in a classic Vans high-top silhouette. The colors of the uppers are derived from Southwestern Native American rugs and their traditional patterns run along the heel into a pull loop to lend poise and personality to a shoe that has become a staple of sophistication and eclectic tastes.” Available for purchase by clicking on the pic above, or after the jump.

“The artisan workmanship of ancient Inca cultures offers fertile grounds for design exploration in the modern age. With patterns and colors inspired by pre-Columbian Inca shawls harnessed in the venerable Sk8-Hi silhouette, this Reissue CA version emphasizes the traditional material’s intricacy and complexity by contrasting warm fall tones with a full grain leather color pop sidestripe undulating across the side panels. In Bronze Brown and Olive Night, suede overlays on vamp, eyestay, and heel combined with a canvas lining, suede lining on the tongue, and tonal laces ground this high-top in the earthy cohesion of color and form conceived long before it was called “design”.” Purchase the shoes now by clicking on the pic above and below.

“Some 14 years after a treacherous 50-50 down the massive Staples Center hubba, Vans has updated Geoff Rowley’s classic signature shoe with contemporary technology, unveiling the Rowley Pro Lite to the world. Where the original shoe was heralded for its boardfeel, the Rowley Pro Lite adds state-of-the-art protection without sacrificing the original responsiveness. On the exterior, the sneaker has been outfitted with a RAPIDWELD™ stitchless upper, which includes breathable mesh at the sides and premium suede at the forefoot. On the interior, a LUXLINER™ inner glove keeps the foot secure, while Vans’ ULTRACUSH™ LITE EVA molded sockliner protects the heel from nasty bruises.” Both colors are available now by clicking on the pics after the jump.

Centuries ago, the women of Mali’s Bamana culture began to relay the breadth and depth of their heritage into art and fabric. To this day, Bògòlanfini, or “mudcloth”, speaks of Africa through the broad strokes of its graphics and rich textures that have influenced contemporary lifestyles everywhere, whether in their bustling cities or walking down their runways. Within the framework of the beloved Chukka Boot silhouette, warm earth tones alternate in contrasting zigzag and blocked stripe patterns to ground modern appeal in the traditions of authentic history. Black suede overlays, tongue and vamp combined with black rope laces, copper antique finish eyelets and an unobtrusive black collar hangflag come together in a classic Vans shoe that is known for innovative design.
